Whatever you drag the mouse across to highlight is automagically in the
clipboard, ready to be pasted.
Put the cursor where you want what you highlighted pasted and hit the
"middle" button. On a two-button mouse this might mean holding down the
left mouse button while clicking the right one. It might also be
pressing the mouse wheel down, depending on your mouse and how it
emulates three buttons.
The clipboard travels between the virtual consoles. You can highlight
on console 1 (where maybe you have a text version of the LFS book open)
and Alt+F3 to console 3 and paste what you highlighted.
